by Food Festivals Ltd (75 exhibitors, 12000 visitors)

About event

22 – 23 June 2019

2019 will be the 6th year of the Fleet Food Festival, a well established artisan food festival celebrating the very best food and drink in Fleet, North East Hampshire.  The event is a 2 day event being held on 22-23 June 2019 and it is recommended to book both days.

With high quality stallholders, food and drink demonstrations and tastings from across the South of the country, this prestigious event has previously attracted over 12,000 visitors: families, food and drink lovers from Hampshire, Surrey and Berkshire. 

The event is organised by the Fleet Business Improvement District committee.  They took over the event in 2018 and ran a successful 2 day festival which incorporated cookery demonstrations, taster talks, a children's entertainment area, over 60 food and drink exhibitors and live music. 

For 2019 a similar event will be held along with supporting events.  These are still being finalised but may include a Car Sow, Craft Market or Arts event alongside the Food Festival.  

Fleet is the main town in the district of Hart, which has repeatedly been voted the best place to live in the country. An affluent town renowned for its independent retailers and restaurant offering, it is surrounded by countryside as well as having great access from the M3 motorway and main London Waterloo train line.

Opening Times:

Saturday 22nd June 10am - 7pm;  Sunday 23th June 10am - 5pm

The categories of exhibitors are:

  • Food products (non-catering) and all other products which may be food related e.g. pots & pans, serving dishes, tea-towels etc
  • Catering & Alcohol (Please see below for information on non polystyrene packaging)  

Catering and Alcohol providers:  As the festival continues to grow, we are looking at new ways of improving the environmental footprint of the festival.  

Other items to note for Catering and Alcohol providers:

  •  If you are providing your own trailer the max size if you are wanting 1 pitch is a 5m length.  Should your trailer exceed this, 2 pitches need to be booked.

For  all exhibitors, we will only be able to accept bookings for the 2 days. 

Deposit scheme - please ensure you click on the deposit button on the payment screen at checkout, to only pay 50% now and the balance on 18 May 2019.

We provide overnight security during the event (Friday - Sunday).  Whilst we do everything we can to minimise any loss or damage to all the site, the exhibitor still remains responsible for any loss, damage, theft or destruction of any exhibit, goods, property or equipment during the set-up and event days.  Please note that all marquees need to be cleared by Sunday evening.

The Fleet Business Improvement District and Food Festivals Ltd view this festival as a long term project and will be investing in it year on year so that it becomes an event that attracts both ‘foodies’ and family visitors alike.  With the high quality of food that Hampshire offers, we hope to attract exhibitors of such calibre so that the event becomes a showcase of Hampshire's finest.

For 2019, a small entry fee will be charged.  This will be £2 for adults with under 16's free.  The cookery demostrations, exhibitor talks, live music and roaming entertainment will be provided free of charge within the grounds of the festival.
